Does salinity change affect Coraline Algae growth ?

To a certain extent, sorta...lol...Generally, with salt mixes, the higher the salinity, the higher the levels of Calcium and other trace elements dissolved in the water. It's those elements that are really gonna aid in coraline growth, not the salinity itself.

 

I dunno, I could totally be wrong, and I don't know if extremes in salinity would have any effect on coraline growth if you continued to dose Calcium. Just sorta taking a shot in the dark...anyone else have any ideas?

Coralline is mostly composed of magnesium.
